Depressing. Painful. Exhausting. These are just some of the words people with scoliosis use to describe what they experience every day. Scoliosis can lead to progressive deformity in the spine as well as incapacitating pain. And too often people are told there is nowhere else to turn. But there is!
The Baylor Scoliosis Center specializes in advanced surgical options to straighten spines curved because of scoliosis - a common disorder of the spine. Since January 2005, the Baylor Scoliosis Center has focused on the care of adolescent and adult scoliosis patients. We are a national referral center located on the campus of Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano, and we also see scoliosis patients at a clinic at Baylor All Saints Medical Center at Fort Worth.
There are relatively few scoliosis specialists in the United States, but the medical staff at Baylor Scoliosis Center features fellowship-trained scoliosis surgeons who specialize in scoliosis care and offer advanced treatment options. The scoliosis surgeons on our medical staff work with primary care physicians across the country to educate them on rapidly advancing technology in scoliosis treatment and make them more aware that scoliosis can be treated in adults.
We have a multi-specialty scoliosis team on the medical staff at Baylor Plano comprised of scoliosis surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists, physiatrists and physician assistants on the medical staff at Baylor who specialize in the care of patients with complicated spinal deformities. We also have a dedicated group of patient care coordinators, nurses, including a patient care nurse navigator, a spinal cord monitoring team and implant specialists who work with us and focus on providing quality care.
The Baylor Scoliosis Center has performed nearly 2,000 scoliosis surgeries on adolescents and adults. We also offer scoliosis screening, bracing and conservative care for patients from all over the United States and throughout the world.
